Easy Sticker Snow Globe Craft
- A mason jar (or any jar with a good seal will do)
- Glitter paillettes (you can also use fake snow or sequins or regular glitter)
- Plastic 3-D Stickers
- Glycerin (vegetable oil works, too!)
Step 1 Open your jar and press on your stickers.
If you want your “globe” to mainly rest on the bottom instead of the lid, keep that in mind when placing your stickers. Our Recollections brand 3D stickers from Michael’s stuck really well and we didn’t have issues with them peeling off.
Step 2 Fill the jar up almost to the top with water.
If you worry about leaking, add some duct tape around the lid and decorate it to hide the tape job. We didn’t have any leaks at all, though, with lots of vigorous shaking.
Step 3 Then add in a drop or two of vegetable oil. If your craft stash is awesomer than ours, then do half water – half glycerin.
The oil/glycerin makes the liquid inside your snow globe more viscous so the glitter slows down instead of falling straight to the bottom, plus it keeps the glitter or fake snow from clumping.
Tip: If you have fake snow, just skip this step altogether for an even easier craft! The kids will love just shaking up the jar and watching the snow drift around.
Step 4 Add lots of glitter paillettes. (Paillettes are like mini-confetti instead of microscopic glitter).
If you use regular glitter, you could probably use just a little. Throw in a few sequins for some fun sparkly floaters, too!
Step 5 Seal your jar and shake it up!
